Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

When I was a kid, my mom used to torture me by making me take all kinds of vitamins. I thought she was some kind of weird Health Nutjob. Then I grew up, and now I find myself taking vitamins and the like because it makes me feel better. Now my kids think I'm a weird Health Nutjob.

I really hate that manufacturers don’t have to disclose on the packaging that their product contains sucralose (Splenda). I guess since it’s “modified sugar”, the FDA thinks it’s fine to just list it quietly in the ingredients. I have to very carefully read labels so I can avoid it, since all artificial sweeteners taste horribly bitter to me (and give me headaches).

I had a weird dream that something was attacking me in my sleep, but I used Super Cool Ninja Moves on it, and killed the Mean Thing. But I woke up to smacking poor Ron in his sleep. I think I scared the crap out of him.

And then the next night, I dreamed that we had this sleep-over work party. One of my managers said, “I get to hold Suz tonight,” and proceeded to snuggle up to me when we were going to sleep. Weird.

Last night, we went to my parents’ house to pick up our new dishwasher (stupid old one died)(it was only 7 years old!), as my dad very nicely went and found us the Best Deal yesterday with all the sales (Ron and I both had to work). Ron and I were talking to my mom, and she mentioned that we probably wanted to get going. Ron replies TO MY MOM, and I quote: “Yeah, so Suz and I can get home and have some wild sex.” Are you supposed to say things like that in front of your mother-in-law?

I'm jealous that you know super cool ninja moves, even if it's only in your dreams.

Uhm, yuck at saying that to his MIL. Hah! At least he was being honest....he could have said you were going home to "wrestle".

Now the important question...was the manager that wanted to hold you hot??? : )

When I was a kid, my mom got me into the habit of taking a vitamin every morning. We had those Flintstones chewable vitamins.

Well, I figured out that if one vitamin was good for me, then a whole bottle might turn me into Superman or Green Lantern or something. It didn't, of course, and when my mom found the empty bottle, she freaked. After the doctor told her to give me a big glass of milk and I'd probably be OK, she relaxed a bit :-)

From then on, we had foul-tasting One-A-Day tablets, and not yummy Fred and Wilmas.

Ha! I had two dreams last night where I was being awfully athletic. Sadly, I did not wake up any skinnier.

And, um, ew about the MIL. Although my hubby could say that in front of my mother and she wouldn't care.

I really should take my vitamins, maybe I'd get sick less often.

Also, my mom is one of those types who blurts out, "don't make any more babies" anytime my husband hugs me. It's slightly creepy, or very...

I can't have sucralose, either - I get major headaches, too. Nice to know I'm not alone (or that it's not all in my head! LOL!) Super Cool Ninja Moves are great...even if only a dream! ;)

Happy Random Tuesday! :)

Like I told you last week, I love your random notes...you have such fun thoughts.

Heather said...

I guess it all depends on "if" your mil smiled or was grossed out!?!

Mrs. C. said...

Oh my Lord, he didn't..and what did SHE say? Now, my mom probably would've said "If a dishwasher does that to you, I'm glad we didn't get you a big screen TV!"

But, she's kinda nasty that way.

Gotta love the too-real-to-be-true dreams where you're sure you are saving the world but in reality you are just handing your husband his ass.

Have you christened your new dishwasher yet?

No, I wouldn't think that very cool to say to in-laws... :-O

Wow. I realise now that it was Random Tuesday Thoughts - they didn't need to follow on from each other. See- I wrote a post like that just yesterday, random photos and all, and I still didn't catch on.

I am hoping that your final paragraph was ALSO a dream? No? Oooo. Inappropriate, and very very funny.

Is the manager you got to cuddle with cute?

Now that you're married you allowed to have sex, so it's okay. Jesus says so.

Captain Dumbass said...

I could say that to my MIL, but she doesn't really speak English. Still, she'd just know.

super cool ninja moves... can we expect a video demo? ;)

BPOTW said...

Whoah! Weird dreams and an even weirder comment to your mom!! Hopefully she's the type that doesn't mind that ;)

Thanks for sharing with BPOTW!

Dreams can be so weird... I wonder if they mean anything?
